Postdoctoral Position to Study the Functional Organization of the Visual 
System at the University of California, Irvine.

Applications are invited for an NIH-funded postdoctoral position in the 
Lyon Laboratory in the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at UC 
Irvine.  Projects are designed to investigate the cell-type specificity 
of long-range circuits in the visual cortex of highly visual mammals 
(such as the cat) and rodent using viral tracers genetically engineered 
in the lab, optogenetics, intrinsic signal optical imaging, and single 
unit electrophysiology.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in neuroscience, or a related field.  The 
ideal candidate will have experience in one or more of the following 
areas: 1) single-unit electrophysiology; 2) Matlab programming; 3) 
intrinsic signal optical imaging; 4) optogenetics; 5) cell-culture 
and/or genetic engineering of plasmid DNA.

Lack of experience in any or all of the above techniques can be offset 
by a demonstration of skill with a related technique and by high 
motivation and enthusiasm to take on new challenges.
Candidates should also not mind year-long pleasant weather, the beach 
being a few miles away, and having to drive two hours in order to see 
snow in winter.

The positions are for 1 to 2 years, with the option for additional 
years.  Funding is available now, but the start date is negotiable.

Salaries are commensurate with experience based on the NIH scale.

Interested applicants should send a CV, research statement, and the 
names and e-mail addresses of 2-3 references to the PI: dclyon at uci.edu
